"My passion for exploring and preserving our rich history crystallized into an obsession when I learned about the astounding life and tragic death of Alan Turing. As a survivor of a suicide attempt when I was a lonely, terrified gay teenager, I was struck to the core by Turing's suicide and the loss to humanity it still represents. I am driven by the desire to create a place where our young people can come to find out about the lives and contributions of the LGBT people who came before them. By giving them an historic context for their own struggles and triumphs we hope to ease the social isolation and cultural marginalization that leads to despair, while at the same time challenging the ignorance from which bullying springs."
